Audio is a little soft and mushy. Still worried over the oysters he ordered, Lum is determined to learn how to cook them, although Abner thinks it’s a waste of time. They don’t even know how to coax them things out of their shells.
Abner learns Lum’s intention to hire grandpap to act as his personal secretary to handle the flood of telegrams from top notch chefs who want the recipe for Lumburgers. For the kind of wages grandpap is getting, Abner is more than willing to take the job, should Lum change his mind.
Grandpap enters to read the latest telegrams requesting the famous recipe. What he needs to do his work is a desk. Will he throw Lum out of his? Lum has about had enough of grandpap’s pushiness, until he realizes that the world is now calling him a genius. Doc Ben Withers enters, hinting grandpap is shirking his duties as Pine Ridge’s sole telegraph boy. Never fear, Abner to the rescue.
